Inside the Lesson
In this episode, Michael Dye, founder of The Genesis Process—a hugely successful addiction relapse prevention program—discusses the power, the influence, and the healing process of addiction. What is addiction, and how can it be broken? With stunning detail and innovative theory, Michael Dye dives in to the hearts and minds of addicts—what compels them toward an addictive behavior, what happened in their childhoods to contribute to their addiction, and what can change their hearts. According to Michael Dye, true healing—and not just sobriety—comes through a real and sincere change of heart. The only way to change an addict’s heart is to press into positive relationships, which satiates the need for compulsive, damaging behaviors. He offers realistic and workable advice for the parent, spouse, child, and friend of an addict and exposes the lies they commonly face, such as “If he’s not okay, then I’m not okay.” Through his 35 years of experience as a professional counselor, Michael Dye offers expert insight into the complex, yet simple, key to healing.
